View the President's Schedule

A Repub. leadership reception in the A.M.—did a receiving line & individual photos. Then to A.F.1 & off to Mount Clemens Mich.—Selfridge Air Nat. Guard Base. Helicoptered to Warren Mich. the Gen. Motors Tech Center with Roger Smith Chmn. of G.M. Board. Had a tour of the tech center & the Saturn Center. This was exciting. Not only is G.M. working on a new type car the “Saturn” but with it a whole new manufacturing concept more advanced than anything one could imagine. From there to their Orien Plant (Cadillacs & Oldsmobiles) where I dedicated the plant & addressed the employees. I also drove a proto-type of the new compact car—a marvel of silent, smooth power & only 4 cylinders. Back to A.F.1 & off to San Antonio—Kelly Field. Over night there. Talked to Nancy in Wash.
